FRIDAY SHOOTOUT

This weeks theme is Domesticated Animals, chosen by Sandy, at flyingwg! Great subject for those of us that LOVE our animals!!!

These wonderful creatures bring me so very much joy. Yes, they can be frustrating, naughty, overly assertive, disorderly, and utterly hysterical, but I'm sure that God put them in our lives to, not only to be our friends, but be our teachers as well.







This horse was so curious about the mailman!










A face only a mother could love...this beauty belongs to Hubby's daughter. She is a wild and crazy girl! The dog, not his daughter! "Bella" brings laughter to her whole family.









Yes, they love me. Well, let me clarify that. The one on my shoulder loves me. The one on my head is making a statement about where he thinks he is on the food chain.








My mother's roommate, Rose. She is a wonderful companion for my mom. A little wicked at times, but they have come to understand each other over the years.

It's hard for me to imagine, but some people absolutely love these...









or these...












Okay, so maybe those don't really qualify as "domesticated." But people do have them as pets. I, however, am not a big fan of either one of those.




Here are my favorite domesticated animals in my town!




The Chef...







The Joker...









and the Queen...

That was one curious horse! I love all of these. You look cute with your two feathered friends :)

I was all warm and fuzzy inside until...the spider - "GAAAAAAAH!" I yelped.

Scrolling quickly by, I got all warm and fuzzy again. Love the dog with two different colored eyes, and you with birds, and the golden is gorgeous, and I forgot now, and am afraid of going back to look...I feel like there is a spider on me!

Great post!

A great post. I think your mother's room-mate is so pretty! Had to scroll quickly past the spider and snake and The Chef was a bit of a blur but loved The Joker, seriously cute.

Kerry said...

oooh: lovely birds! I think I would enjoy birds, but worry they might outlive me; plus we have a cat. And I think you're the only one who got a shot of a tarantula, and a snake. Thanks, but I'll take the dogs any day!

Chef E said...
